For World AIDS Day, More Resources for Your HIV Toolkit

For World AIDS Day, More Resources for Your HIV Toolkit

What are you waiting for

In anticipation of World AIDS Day, as organizations turn an eye toward making improvements to their treatment plans and care models, we want to share new resources that will help you do just that. In September, we released a new landing page for simpler, user-friendly access to evidence-informed HIV care continuum resources. Research has demonstrated the importance of HIV care continuum activities; therefore, finding interventions that help clients move along the stages of the continuum are particularly important.

Today, we’re announcing even more resources to help you do more and go further!

On our dynamically organized landing page, users will find an intuitive layout, navigation, and user experience. These Integrating HIV Innovative Practices (IHIP) products are informed by Special Projects of National Significance (SPNS) research and evaluation. Products include easy-to-use training manuals, curricula, case studies, pocket guides, monographs, webinar TA trainings, and handbooks, as well as informational handouts and infographics about SPNS, its projects, and reach.

IHIP Menu

The most recently added TA resources are webinar trainings available for replaying, downloading, and sharing. Topics include:

Each year of the IHIP project, a series of webinars are produced to create a more interactive resource arsenal of training and TA tools.

IHIP Manuals

If you missed it, check out our comprehensive training resources called Improving Health Outcomes: Moving Patients Along the HIV Care Continuum and Beyond. This manual highlights 10 SPNS-funded interventions that were implemented in Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program (RWHAP) care facilities and have proven to advance people living with HIV (PLWH) along the care continuum. Each chapter examines a specific stage of the HIV care continuum, providing rationale for the interventions highlighted, and is presented as a case study to demonstrate their effectiveness. These case studies explore the major steps that each intervention model took, including program planning, implementation steps, and lessons learned. Through replicating successful SPNS models in clinical and community practices, we can ensure improved health outcomes and quality of life for PLWH and their communities.

Other timely IHIP topics and interventions include:

  • integrating buprenorphine opioid treatment,
  • jail linkage programs, 
  • hepatitis C coinfection, 
  • engaging hard-to-reach populations (including communities of color and YMSM), 
  • health information technology, 
  • medication access programs,
  • in-reach, 
  • outreach, and 
  • oral health

As you re-commit to the cause this coming World AIDS Day, pick up one of these IHIP resources. These resources can be found on the TARGET Center's IHIP landing page.
